Poor Ken. One snide comment about hockey and Kendra, his girlfriend—or “girlfriend coach,” rewarded each date with an American Express gift card—asks him not to call her any more. How can he win her back? By using his rent money to buy a fortune in hockey equipment and skating with the aging Ice Dogs. But it’s never that simple, because all of his teammates, Ivan the terrible landlord, Mittens the stray cat, and the sexy scorekeeper Franka are out to get him—all in their own special ways.
